Smena 2 first roll

Smena 2 first roll

Got this legendary LOMO camera as a gift. It seems to be working well, apart from an issue with the self-timer. The bubbles come from a dedicated darkroom technique (the tipster is submitted and is now pending approval).

adash Taken by adash with a Smena 2 loaded with ORWO N74 film in Sofia, Bulgaria. These tags describe this photo: жигули, лада, russian, lada, drops, droplets, drop, droplet, bubbles, bubble, streaks, streak, development, stand, r09, rodinal, b&w, смена, смена 2, smena 2, 2, smena, and orwo. Date: 2012-10-27. Time: Afternoon. This photo can also be found in the album Smena 2 first roll.

    @rewd Probably. Don't forget it was the better car available to the mortals in the Eastern block.....

    Not only in the Eastern block... my father in law had one... but here we just thought it was uncomfortable, noisy and unconvenient to drive...

    @louwest Thanks, darling.
    @streuobst A friend at my previous work had one, and it was a lot of fun to ride indeed. Comfort was zero, but with the right people, each ride can be fun!
